AB ponders the WYD icon.
July 30 - Her contemplation gives way to a kiss of reverence.
This reminds us of all of our pilgrimages in life. Contemplation
and the reverence of God and the Mother of God sustains us.
July 31 - The WYD icon crosses the Alberta/Saskatchewan border.
Fr. Bohdan Nahachewsky on the Alberta side passes it on to
his blood brother Fr. Ivan Nahachewsky and Fr. Ivan's daughter.
It is on its way to North Battleford, SK.
August 15, 2007 - After crossing the Alberta-Saskatchewan
border fewer photos were taken unfortunately. None were received
to document the visit of the icon in North Battleford although
a raffle was held to raise money for the school and youth
traveling to Sydney. Likewise, pics were not sent to our web
page when the WYD icon visited Prince Albert. This photo was
taken of Fr. Ivan Nahachewsky, the pastor of St. George's
Parish in Prince Albert when he was canoing in Albert from
Nordegg to Rocky Mountain House. Thanks to all the parishioners
In North Battleford and Prince Albert for your participation.
We are greatful for Virtual Pilgrim efforts!
